Modeling Foreign-born population The figure gives the percent of the U.S. population that was foreign-born for selected years from 1910 and projected to 2020. Find the cubic function that is the best fit for the data. Use x = 0 to represent 1900, and report the model to three significant digits. Find the critical point of the reported model when x > 50 . Interpret this point in terms of the percent of foreign-born people in the U.S. population.

Modeling Foreign-born population The figure gives the percent of the U.S. population that was foreign-born for selected years from 1910 and projected to 2020.

  1. Find the cubic function that is the best fit for the data. Use x = 0 to represent 1900, and report the model to three significant digits.

  2. Find the critical point of the reported model when x > 50 .

  3. Interpret this point in terms of the percent of foreign-born people in the U.S. population.
